Tyga had to be dragged out of Floyd Mayweather‘s party Saturday night in Hollywood, after he reportedly came to blows with an angry club-goer.
According to TMZ, Tyga was celebrating at the Sunset Room Mayweather’s 42nd birthday, when an aggressive man popped off, grabbed at the rapper’s clothes, and got in his face.
It’s unclear what set the man off but Tyga, whose real name is Michael Stevenson, had to be held back by his friends before he was grabbed by the neck and escorted out of the venue by security to avoid any further altercations.
“It started as a rift about letting another guy go to a certain area of the party,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly. “Then Tyga started yelling at security, saying, ‘What did you say to me?’ And they started a fight.”
Once outside the club, it escalated to the point where the “Taste” rapper reportedly reached for his security guard’s gun but he never took possession of it.
The source adds: “Tyga told his security guard, ‘Give me the gun.’”
The scene outside Mayweather’s party took a hot minute to cool down, and Tyga and his crew eventually left the club.
Kylie Jenner’s ex is quite familiar with trouble finding him after clubbing it. In April 2017, Tyga was detained by the LAPD after leaving Hollywood’s Avenue nightclub.
LAPD told Us that Tyga was not arrested.
“Today around 1:30 this morning in Hollywood division on Selma and Cherokee, Hollywood division officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle that had paper plates. Officers decided to conduct a field sobriety test. However, due to all the paparazzi at the location, officers decided to transfer Mr. Stevenson to Hollywood station,” the LAPD said. “He passed the field sobriety test and was released. He was cited for a minor traffic violation.”
